19 3 2 The Abbot Circle the evening I heard the same thing happen again. I hoped that they were enjoying themselves as much as I was, but I doubted it. I heard a distant fog horn which meant that the early morning would be foggy. A whiff of air brought me a delicious odor of tobacco smoke, and I remembered my father. He was happy, too, and I got up to join him before slipping under my white sheet to go to sleep on my bunk and dream yet more of the water and its silent boats. Elizabeth Palmer Two Loves QA Sonnet) Two loves have I and both are passing fair; And both I love with all my strength and heart. And yet I do not know how I can share Such force of love, and from them be apart. The one has eyes of ever-changing blue; Her hair is gently ruffled by the breeze; The moonlight tints her face with silver hue, As joyfullv she stands among the trees. My second love is almost always sad. Her voice so clear I love to hear her sing. But at the times when she is very glad, New hopes and inspirations she can bring. The first of these a shaded pool is she. My other love the e ' er inspiring sea. Georgia Thomson 91

The Abbot Circle 19 3 2 Contentment It was after ten one hot summer night in August — or rather it was a hot night everywhere but on the water. The sky was covered with stars — some shining brightly, others seeming to twinkle in and out in the distance. The mast-head lights of many boats swayed silently back and forth, as they were rocked by the incoming tide. From the club-house on the nearby shore the faint music of an orchestra drifted to me over the water. I imagined myself dancing to that orchestra, and yet was glad that I was not. Lying on my back on the forward deck of the " Wanakah " , I was superbly happy; I was contented; I forgot my worries, and I lazily took notice of a beautiful night on the water. In the city it would be unbearably hot, but out here where I was a cool breeze fanned me at intervals — just enough to keep me cool. The moon was full — a very beautiful sight and, as I watched it, it seemed to sway back and forth in the heavens, when, in reality, it was the boat which rocked. The tide was almost full. I could hear the waves lapping up against the rocks on the shore, although where I was the water seemed almost still. A few ripples here and there were the only evidences that the tide was really coming in. I could hear voices — ex- cited and happy, I supposed — mingling with the distant music. There is nothing in the world like a silent evening on the water to carry distant sounds distinctly for long distances. I could almost understand what they were saying, but I soon tired of trying to listen and turned my attention to a small sailboat, a cat boat, which had suddenly loomed up beside me out of the darkness. I could hear only the ripple of the water as the waves lapped upon the bow, as the little boat glided silently through the water. A beautiful sail — so graceful and so silent ! Suddenly in the distance, around the cove, came the rhythmic chug-chug of an outboard motor. Nearer and nearer it came, until finally it scooted past me and as quickly passed into the darkness as the chug-chug became softer and softer. Finally I could hear it no more. Soon a large rather bulky looking rowboat came toward me. In it were three old grey-haired fishermen who were coming home after a whole day out in the cove. They were singing, although rather off-tune, to themselves. I think they were singing something about " Sweet Adeline " , although I could not dis- tinguish the words. I wondered how many fish they had caught, and how much patience they must have had to stay in the cove all day. They disappeared, and the plop-plop of the oars grew fainter. I lay dreaming for a while, thinking of nothing but my contented state of mind, of my complete isolation from a hurrying world, and of the wonderful though simple happenings about me. My attention was roused for a minute. From the boat next to mine came the plop-plop-gurgle of bottles being thrown into the water. I concluded that the crew on the " Mabe II " were enjoying themselves. At different times during 90
